Welcome to the fora. There are quite a few threads about K and M series exposures, including a couple by me, particularly to do with my M 400/5.6. I found, with my particular K10D and M 400, that only 100% manual exposure works. I also found, by comparing shots with sunny 16, that the K10D will give me a reasonable exposure reading stopped down to f/8. I now interpolate from that. I found that Av, which only works wide open anyway, was not reliable at all.

Once you get the hang of the exposure, you will be happy with most of the old lenses' performance.
